Our "Never Gonna Happen" Philosophy

Here at Miami Beach Bum we care as much about the ingredients we choose not to include, as we do the ones we consciously include. We take that extra step in excluding ingredients linked to skin irritations and allergies, hormone disruption, cancer, as well as ingredients that negatively impact the environment and welfare of animals because we really care. 

Did you know your skin is the largest organ and has its own ecosystem? This ecosystem is known as the microbiome and it helps regulate skin health and your immune system. What we put on our skin gets absorbed and can make its way into our bloodstream. This is why our marine scientist founder formulates on the principles of green chemistry—a process that eliminates the generation of toxic substances during manufacturing. 

Clean—meaning non-toxic— beauty matters because our health and wellbeing are determined by what we consume, what we think, and our environment.

The average person uses 10+ beauty products a day, and without the use of clean formulas, they are being exposed to ~200+ chemicals a day. Over time this micro-dose of toxins can affect hormones, fertility and cause disease. Because of this, Ayssa only formulates on the principles of green chemistry. This means using minimal, natural ingredients that don’t cause harm to any ecosystems. 

That's why we formulate with plant ingredients like: Aloe Vera, Herbs, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and the most clean preservatives available: Glyceryl Caprylate and Glyceryl Undecylenate.

With the principle of clean beauty at our core and our mission to promote health and well being, we mean it when we say that the list below is NEVER GONNA HAPPEN:
